Please don't schedule any DII, or DIII games please. The tougher the schedule the better we will be. Duke away in addition to some quality games will be nice for our returning veteran squad ;)

Agree. Of course for the one or two exhibition games you have no choice.

Those darn exhibition games! I had a bad feeling about this season when we lost that exhibition game to Rutgers.

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Why doesn’t Chris Mullin do a NY tournament like Nova does with the other Philly schools?

Schedule: Iona, Hofstra, Columbia, Fordham and St. bonaventure?

Because the Bonnies would win (at least this year). Nova doesn't put on Philly tournament. You must be referring to the Philly Big 5 schools that all play each other every year and have done so for like 100 years except that it may have been discontinued somewhat a few years ago.

Great idea. Maybe throw in Manhattan, Niagara, Canisius, and Fairfield into the mix also and pick best available?

I don’t think it’s discontinued. Nova just went through the philly 5 this year.

They beat Penn
90-62

They beat temple
87-67

They beat St. Joseph’s
94-53

And lasalle University
77-68

We use to play all local teams in our exhibition schedule and then we started losing to them - Hofstra, Manhattan,St. Francis, LIU.

For the most part we stopped playing these teams.

If they want to boost attendance playing local teams would help.

Right now we know 4 games:
- Temple, Oregon, VCU ( 2 of 3) at Barclays centter
- @ Duke
- Georgia Tech in Miami

Only 8 teams play in Gavitt games, wondering since we are Duke if we try to take off next year as our Gavitt game would probably be a road game.

Loved the schedule this year but I dont want to see any D2 teams on the schedule next year. It's pointless
